Biden has allowed 500,000 illegals into the country through 'parole'

The Biden administration has admitted at least half a million immigrants into the country through his controversial "parole" program - while leaving millions of American citizens to shoulder the burden.

The inflow of 540,000 amounts to the "largest expansion of legal immigration" in American history, a report in CBS said.

The parolees include 168,400 people from Cuba, Haiti, Nicaragua, and Venezuela, 163,000 Ukrainians, and 70,000 Afghan refugees.

Biden's "legal" invasion

Additionally, 130,000 immigrants have been admitted through the CBP One mobile app, which allows inadmissible aliens to schedule an appointment at the border to request entry into the country.

Republicans have mocked the app, saying it actually makes illegal immigration more convenient. Up to 529,250 migrants may be admitted every year through the mobile app, and there is a 360,000-person annual cap on parole for Venezuelans, Haitians, Cubans, and Nicaraguans.

Immigration law allows the president to permit immigrants into the U.S. without visas, but parole has never been used on this scale before.

"At this scale, in this time period, it is unprecedented," Doris Meissner, a top immigration official who served under Reagan and Clinton, said.

"Safe" and "legal"

The administration has touted a recent drop in illegal border crossings as proof that Biden's parole policies are working.

The approach, the administration says, is successfully diverting would-be illegal immigrants through "safe" and "legal" pathways.

Republicans counter that Biden is playing a shell game by redefining the status of large numbers of people who would otherwise be considered illegal immigrants.

"The Department of Homeland Security, under the false pretense of preventing aliens from unlawfully crossing the border between the ports of entry, has effectively created a new visa program — without the formalities of legislation from Congress," a lawsuit from Republican states said.


With this new program, Biden is likely creating a repeat of the mess the country inherited from Obama, who created a new class of "Dreamers" whose legal status is now a perennial issue.

If the past is any indication, it's only a matter of time before Democrats start pressing for these "parolees" to receive amnesty.

Of course, Biden's historic expansion of parole doesn't paint a full picture of the invasion that he has unleashed on the country, which has doubtless brought millions of illegals into the interior.

Meanwhile, the American people are left to absorb the costs of this unending disaster.
